The Japanese alternative rock band have announced that they will not be playing in cities around Asia from March to June.
Their statement below:
“To our loyal fans, firstly thank you for your constant support and encouragement of ONE OK ROCK.
After much consideration on the current situation involving the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we regretfully announce the postponement of the following shows:
“Eye of the Storm” Japan Tour to be held in Nagoya (March 31 and April 1); and
“Eye of the Storm” Asia Tour to be held across 7 countries consisting 10 shows (April 25 – June 7)
We sincerely apologize to all fans that were looking forward to the shows however as we consider the safety of our fans and all related parties involved to be of the utmost importance, this decision has been made.
We are currently working on new dates for both the Nagoya show and the Asia Tour however if adjustment cannot be made due to conflicting venue schedules the performance may have to be relocated to a different venue or cancelled entirely.”
Last in the region as the opening act to the Asia leg of Ed Sheeran’s Divide World Tour in 2019, the band was slated to play in Singapore on May 9th, 2020.
Other dates and cities include, Nagoya (31 March – 1 April), Bangkok (25 April), Seoul (30 April), Manila (2 May), Hong Kong (22 May), Jakarta (30 May) and Taiwan (4-7 June).
Tickets for Singapore which were meant to go on sale on March 6 and March 7 for Live Nation members and public sales respectively, never did.
The postponement comes expected, considering the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19 around the world in the last couple of weeks.
We at AsiaLive365 are deeply gutted by this but we hope to see the band again on our shores really soon.
Keep safe everyone, Wherever You Are.
Let us be Giants and hold our Heads High to weather through this storm.
